How to pay for a ride on your own bus or train

The journey is simple, and in most cases you’ll be taking your own vehicle with you.

But if you want to get on a bus or metro rail service, you’ll need to get a car.

But you’ll also need to book a car rental from the operator.

There are some things you can do to book your own car, or to avoid a long wait at a station, if you have one.


Get an appointment with a driver First, if there’s a queue, it’s better to get an appointment.


Know your timetable The timetable is your guide to when the trains will run.

If you need to go on a journey early in the morning or early in evening, it may be best to book ahead.


Be prepared for traffic congestion A bus can only go from A to B when there’s traffic.

If there’s no traffic on the road, you can go anywhere, including to your destination, if the traffic is light.


Use a safe driver If you have to pay extra for a car, it might be a good idea to ask someone to drive you if you’re going to be away from home for a long time.


Book your car ahead of time You might want to book early to avoid delays.

If this is the case, you might also want to check the website of the operator, or make an appointment to make an order.


Don’t expect to get anywhere quickly You’ll need your own pick-up and drop-off point to pick up and drop off your car.

The operator will arrange the pick-ups for you.

If the driver doesn’t know where you’re taking the car, you may need to arrange pick-offs yourself, or ask the driver to drive the car to the right place.


Make sure you know where the car is parked Find the right spot for your car, and ask if you can park it where you can’t see the driver.

This can save you a lot of time if you end up picking up your car and getting stuck on the way home.


Get the best driver for the job The operator’s driver will pick up your vehicle, but you’ll still need to pay him or her a fee to help pay for the trip.


Avoid paying for the ticket and the ride There are many things you should do to avoid paying for your ticket and paying for a trip that will take you across state lines.

If you’re unsure of what to do, it can be helpful to ask for help on the website for your local operator.
